Big pug Fat Frank was found roaming the streets in 100 degree weather and could barely breathe. We rushed him to a veterinarian right away to help him. Frank suffers from a collapsed trachea, which makes it difficult for him to breath, and an enlarged heart which is causing heart failure. In addition to a debilitating spinal issue and arthritis which cause pain, Frank is also vision-impaired and has chronic dry-eye, which require medicated drops multiple times a day.
Despite all these issues, Frank is the best dog and loves his foster daddy so much that he waits by the door for him to come home each day. It is just adorable…Frank only want to be with him.
But Frank isn't taking it that easy! While he does spend most of the day sleeping in various cozy orthopedic dog beds and snuggling into his fuzzy cuddly blanket, he has also been seen around town at the local pet store picking out treats and then grabbing an ice cream at McDonalds. (and boy, does he love treats!)
He takes walks in a doggie stroller since he can’t walk far, and is currently receiving acupuncture, cold laser and massage therapy to help his back pain and arthritis.
We think he is about 12. So he will stay with his foster family -- loving life and checking off his bucket list -- until it’s his time.
